Indoor sets look very ugly to an outdoor player because they spin a lot and just don't look clean. 8. You can double the ball when it's a hard driven ball (spike). If someone spikes at you double it all you want.|
9. This isn't really a rule but something good to know if you are making the transition from indoor to outdoor volleyball. The ball is not going to feel like a rock because it's so pumped up like an indoor ball. The ball pressure is supposed to be less in outdoor volleyballs, so don't try to pump up all the balls or complain that they need more air. That's the way they are supposed to be.
10. The court is smaller. This means that if you are use to hitting the ball on the back line it will be a few feet out so you need to work more on hitting straight down and using shots. The outdoor court measures 8 meters by 8 meters on each side.
It's summertime. That means it's time to wax up the old surfboard and take the old "woody" down to the beach and enjoy the sounds of summer. And what would the sounds of summer be without great beach music? The one group who epitomized the beach sound was The Beach Boys.
The group originally consisted of brothers Brian, Carl and Dennis Wilson, along with their cousin Mike Love and Al Jardine. Other notables who played with the Beach Boys included Glenn Campbell, when Brian quit touring in 1964; Bruce Johnston (of Bruce & Terry) permanently replaced Campbell and Darryl Dragon (the Captain of the Captain & Tennille) worked as a stage keyboardist.
In high school they were known as Kenny & the Cadets, Carl & the Passions and The Pendletones before settling on The Beach Boys in 1961. And aren't we glad they did?
